BLUEBERRY - BRIGHTWELL

Blueberry Brightwell For Sale Mega TubeBotanical Name: Vaccinium ashei
Description

Often called Rabbiteyes this is one of the hardiest of all the blueberries. Berries often form like grapes in thick clusters. This variety is often in the shops due to it's larger size and bigger harvest. It ripens in the middle or end of the blueberry harvesting season. It is self fertile but you can increase it's yield by planting it near other varieties. This variety is very well suited for the home orchard.

Comments: - Suspect it died due to short lapse in watering. Other varieties of blueberry bushes OK. Perhaps this variety is more sensitive.

Comments: - Acid loving plant, I use azalea potting mix, azalea slow release fertiliser and pine bark. I have them in large pots and 2 other varieties with them as cross pollination increases fruit production significantly.

Blueberry - Brightwell (Cutting)

VF1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1888 days 2hrs

Comments: -

Fresh grown fruit noticeably superior in taste to shop bought ones. The kids love them

Is a rabbit-eye variety with a chill requiremant at upper-end of low chill hours. Has attractive powdery dark blue-green leaves.

Wanting to flower heavily at the moment (Sept.), and I'm picking flowers off daily so plant can put its' energy into growing rather than fruit producing, for the next year or two.

Will be planted next spring when plant much bigger.

Best with a cross-pollinator, although is somewhat self-fertile.

I just love the flavour of blueberries. I tried to grow them and a  lot of other things about 25 years ago but at the time we didn't  have access to the knowledge that is available to us today through the internet. So the attempt was doomed to failure.

Waste of time and resources as you would need several plants to get any sort of useful harvest..no room in a small backyard.  --  Out it goes!
